In the beginning, JD adamantly only wanted two children. I thought that four would be perfect. Once we caught God's vision of putting orphans into families, our plan was multiplied by God. We are currently blessed with 12 children; five biological, six adopted and one more waiting in Ethiopia. Our first adoption was from the U.S., the next three were from Liberia, West Africa, and our last two were from Ethiopia. We are supporting our 12th child in Ethiopia after her adoption could not pass court.

The New 7 Year Old

 Another new at our house is a new 7 year old; Selah's birthday was yesterday. Since it was a school day, I took cup-cakes to her class.

Selah up front while everyone sang Happy Birthday
 I let Selah pass them out to her friends.

She enjoyed herself. 
Since cup-cakes were consumed in the afternoon, we concluded the day by ordering pizza, make sundaes and, of course, present time.

We all kind of felt like it was our birthday because Gabriel sent a box of presents from Japan.  I'm as happy with my coat as Elijah is with his Ninja accessories. 

 We are only a month away from the two year anniversary of Selah and Bella coming home!
